Smart PoE Switches for a Smarter Security World

Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a technology that allows a single cable to transfer data connection and electric power to devices. It lets network cables to carry electrical power. As industrial devices are becoming more power hungry, PoE is the best solution for it. PoE switch not only supports power and data transmission over one Ethernet cable but also simplify the cabling process and cut network cost. PoE switch is mainly used with IP cameras, VoIP phones and wireless access points (WAP).

City utilities and industry sectors are being connected to video surveillance systems in order to create a smarter world with enhanced safety and security. As the industrial world continues to become smarter and more connected, cities and industry sectors are installing video surveillance systems to enhance safety and security, the EDS-P506E-4PoE switches can provide up to 60 W per PoE port, almost any type of PTZ cameras using multiple functions can be powered reliably.

PoE Switches

The EDS-P506E-4PoE series of PoE switches, launched by MOXA, provide up to 60 W per PoE port for converged data and power transmission. The power output was designed for IP cameras that use power-demanding functions such as PTZ, illumination, heaters, and fans in harsh environments.

The EDS-P506E-4PoE switches feature:

60 W PoE: The EDS-P506E-4PoE has 4 Fast Ethernet PoE+ ports that can supply up to 60 W per port with a total power budget of 180 W. The smart PD detection feature and plug-and-play integration allow it to supply power to any PoE PD effortlessly.


Device-level Cybersecurity: These switches are designed for deployment in mission-critical and public safety applications. The switches incorporate security features that are based on the IEC 62443 standard to protect the network from unauthorized device access.

Smart PoE

Capability to monitor powered devices(PD) to meet the operational requirements: This switch comes with built-in Smart PoE software powered device(PD) which allows automatic PD detection of power class, status, and errors for smart diagnostics, and enables failure check, which can automatically reboot cameras if they freeze or experience lag. These features increase operational efficiency and significantly reduce the effort required by maintenance staff. This one of the most appealing features of the EDS-P506E-4PoE switch.

Robust Switches: To ensure maximum uptime for data and power transfer in harsh conditions, the EDS-P506E-4PoE supports millisecond-level failover redundancy, dual power inputs, and -40 to 75°C wide operating temperature range to ensure constant and robust connections.
